Notes/Commercial Description:
Wheat (May – September) German brewers discovered centuries ago that the addition of wheat produces a distinctively light, refreshing beer. Unlike traditional German wheat beers produced by other breweries, Abita Wheat is a lager, not an ale, and contains a generous amount of wheat which produces a clean, simple flavor.

3.98/5  rDev +19.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz brown short with a freshness date marked on back.

Appearance: Clear pale golden with a wispy white lace.

Smell: Clean aroma of malt sweetness and a little spicy hop.

Taste: The spicy hop bitterness and flavour rides the tail of the crisp carbonation and grain. Then the malt sweetness and soft wheat flavour kicks in with still more lingering spicy hop flavour. The after taste cleans up with some fading grain and hop.

Notes: This is an awesome American Wheat! It is fermented with a German lager yeast which contributes to this brew being so clean. A better summer seasonal than those lemon zested wheat brews, one of the top picks for a summer time brew.

Serving type: bottle
